Our immigration advice service

If you have an immigration query, we can refer you to our dedicated immigration advice service, where you can get free, basic advice on your initial enquiry.

If your enquiry is complex and goes beyond basic advice, as a member of the BMA, you will be eligible for a reduced fee for further legal support.

Initial free advice covers:

  • Advice on applications for leave to enter or remain in the UK that are within the immigration rules.
  • Diagnosis of your need for specific immigration advice.
  • One-off advice.
